need info on teflon hard coating for 7075 T6 application

need info on teflon hard coating for 7075 T6 application

(OP)
SUbject says it all.  I am making control arm bushings that were originally out of most likely 8620.  I would like to switch to 7075 T6 and I have been told that bmw teflon hard coats theirs.  If anyone knows where I can find some info let me know or has other input.

Thanks

I have had very positive experience with Magnaplate in the food processing industry.  I have used their coatings on steel, stainless, and aluminum parts for their combination of anti-stick, corrosion control, and durability.

I'm not affiliated with Magnaplate in any way.

Tweaking hardness can reduce wear something like nominally 1 or 2 X.
Tweaking Lubrication potentially can reduce wear 10X
